Everything your music needs today.
Imagine a future where things just work. A future where nothing stands in the way of your musical impulses, and you always have the means to act upon them.
With Propellerhead Rack Extensions and the Rack Extension Store, you’ll already be there. Instead of unstable plug-ins, authentication nightmares and compatibility complications, Propellerhead offers an alternative: Unifying. Simplifying. Future-proofing.
Rack Extensions expand Reason, and let you add whatever your music needs. Be it instruments or effects, by Propellerhead or others. Try it, buy it, and download it straight into your rack. There simply are no risky choices. Just everything your music needs today. And tomorrow.
Propellerhead Rack Extensions arrive in the next version of Reason, second quarter of 2012. For owners of Reason 6 or Reason Essentials, the upgrade will be free.
"If I could sum up what musicians want in one word, it would be 'more.'"

What are Rack Extensions?
With Rack Extensions the Reason rack opens up to third party developers. Through this new technology — built into Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials 1.5 — you can expand your collection of instruments and effects with the Reason devices you want; devices created by Propellerhead and other developers.
This is not another plugin format—Rack Extensions are full Reason rack citizens, giving you the same great experience as any other Reason device. Load them in Combinators, route cables on the back, automate all parameters, and experiment with the safety of undo.
Browse all Rack Extensions in the Rack Extension Store and even download fully functional trial versions to load into your rack. Every Rack Extension you have purchased can be downloaded as many times as you need — for both Mac and Windows — and the latest version is never more than a click away. There are simply no risky purchases.
